A’s expand Ovations partnership to include newly renovated Hohokam Stadium

The Oakland Athletics (A’s) will return to Mesa, Arizona, USA, to the newly renovated Hohokam Stadium for their 2015 spring training and will partner with the facility’s current catering and concessions provider, Ovations Food Services. Ovations will also serve as the A’s retail merchandising partner at their new spring home.


Ovations currently serves A’s fans at the Coliseum and announced last month the addition of retail merchandise operations as well. A subsidiary of the sports and entertainment firm Comcast-Spectacor, Ovations has provided food and beverage services at Hohokam Stadium since 2006.


Jim Leahey, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the A’s said:

We are pleased to be expanding our partnership with Ovations to Hohokam Stadium in Mesa. Ovations will be a key ingredient to making the spring training experience special for our fans.


Jay Satenspiel, Ovations’ Regional Vice President, added:

Oakland Athletics fans can expect a whole new ballgame in the areas of concessions and catering. We are going back into the ballpark with our Everything’s Fresh™ philosophy front-of-mind, which means new equipment, new concepts and new flavors for fans and guests.


The A’s open the 2015 spring training slate Tuesday, March 3, against the San Francisco Giants at Hohokam Stadium.
